Key Technologies for the Next GenerationWireless
The principal objectives of next generation wireless communication are the delivery of higher data rate services including video, audio, data and voice signals with worldwidecompatibility. The promise of new radio spectrum encouraged the world's mobile tele-communication operators to pay very high prices for 3G licenses. Most 3G systems are
arranged to operate in 2GHz frequency band. The 4G represents the next development stagesof cellular evolution beyond 3G, and offers an ideal basis and bandwidth to provide moreefficient cellular multicast services. At present, 4G exists only in the conceptual framework
to discuss and address future high-speed network and handset requirements. In this context,we address the following important topics such as key technologies of wirelesscommunication system, main standardization trends of next generation and major
implementation issues for wireless SOC.
